Rivers State Governor and Director-General of Buhari/Osinbajo Campaign Organisation, Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi has described the victory of the Presidential flag bearer of the All Progressives Congress (APC), General Muhamadu Buhari, as the handwork of God to effect change in the leadership of the country.

Amaechi stated this when he arrived the Port Harcourt International Airport, Omagwa, where he was welcomed by state APC chieftains and party stalwarts.

He thanked Nigerians and APC faithful for their collective efforts in voting Buhari and assured that he will run a transparent and accountable government that will move the nation to greater heights.

According to him, “I attribute the victory of APC to the handwork of God. And, it is to effect change in the leadership of this country.

“I want to thank Nigerians and APC faithful for the various roles they played to lead the party to victory. Be assured that Buhari’s administration will run an accountable and transparent government and will take this nation to the next level,” Amaechi said.

Amaechi, who also doubles as chairman of Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF), enjoined Nigerians and APC faithful to join him in congratulating Buhari and his running mate, Professor Yemi Osinbanjo, on their victory at the polls.

In the same vein, some APC chieftains and party supporters have been sending congratulatory messages to Buhari, Osinbanjo and Amaechi on the victory of the party at the polls.

Top on the list is the Senator representing Rivers South East, Magnus Abe, who thanked the Almighty God “for making it possible for Nigerians to know the truth in the face of wickedness, political high handedness and impunity by the military and the police against APC supporters in the state”.

According to him, “We don’t have anything to say than to tell Governor Amaechi thank you for making it possible for us to identify with the All Progressive Congress, that won the Presidential elections. The victory for Buhari has made us proud, Rivers people will now be free from wickedness, political high handedness and impunity,” Abe said.

Also speaking, the APC state party chairman, Davies Ikanya, said: “This victory of Buhari is the glory of God and it means Nigerians are beginning to have a say in governance. I congratulate General Buhari and the Director General, Governor Amaechi, for putting the vision of the party into reality”.

Ikanya also urged Rivers people to embrace change and expect to see APC as the ruling party after May 29.

“This time around, we have seen that Rivers people and Nigerians are yearning for change and Buhari’s victory is victory for Africa. It is also a good example for other African leaders to emulate.

“Nigerians are happy because they were given freedom to exercise their legitimacy for a credible government. This is a step forward to move the country to achieve desired results,” Ikanya said.

On his part, former Caretaker Committee Chairman of Obo/Akpor Local Government area, Dr. Lawrence Chukwu, said the victory of Buhari should be regarded as the collective will of Nigerians for change in the nation’s democracy.

Chuku also commended Amaechi for steering the initiative to effect change in the nation’s democracy.

According to him, “I commend Governor Amaechi who initiated the move to effect change for the future of Nigeria. I am proud to say agents of change were truly in charge of the process”.
